Studies show that reading, listening, or watching negative news has a huge negative impact on our mood and emotions at work.
But wait! You want your team to be up-to-date, but you also need them upbeat and productive. That means you need to lead the way. A couple of suggestions:
- Ditch the negative news by turning off any alerts or replacing mainstream news sources with one that offers a humorous approach. That means “bye-bye” Yahoo! news, “hello" the Skimm!
- Consider replacing the radio with a Spotify or Pandora selection of upbeat songs or a positive podcast
